It's not very clear so is it possible to fly with a leg plaster on long haul?

Depends from airline to airline and how recent it is, best contact customer service of your airline.

do contact the airline you're flying on as they have their own regulations.

No. An injury requiring a plaster is certain to invalidate your medical, which automatically invalidates your licence.

If I'm correct no airline will allow you to fly without a medical note stating it's ok (or at least they aren't suppose to let you fly without it).

A short-haul flight can always become a long-haul one 😅
